In this episode, I talk with Rachel Batish of Audioburst. Audioburst is reinventing the podcast and audio industry by providing searchable audio. One can search the actual audio of podcasts and listen to snippets of a podcast using Audioburst.
Rachel talks about getting a start with voice as a co-founder of Conversation.one. Conversation.one was a build once, deploy everywhere voice experience tool which specialized in the financial services industry.
In 2018, Rachel joined Audioburst and leads the product team there. Audioburst indexes millions of pieces of audio content and then allows a user to search the audio. As an Audioburst user, I can search for content, listen to a snippet of the search results, create personalized playlists, and in the end discover more audio content that intrigues me.
As a podcaster, Audioburst creators lets a podcaster edit the AI-generated snippets, edit keywords and create Audiograms for sharing on social media.
We talk about the challenges with podcasting today and how Audioburst enables end-user discovery which is a huge challenge today.
Rachel wrote a book about conversational design, Voicebot and Chatbot Design which provides design guidance for building a successful conversational experience. We talk about the book and writing it.
Rachel provides advice for aspiring voice entrepreneurs, podcasters and experience podcasters looking to move to the next level.
We end by discussing the future for voice, audio, and podcasting.
